Under this program, CEFROHT conducts legal research and offers legal advisory on economic rights, rights to food, nutrition, and health. Through both strategic and pro-bono litigation, CEFROHT defines rights to adequate food, health, and trade, as well as redress to violations of such rights.
We also seek to promote access to justice by using quasi-judicial bodies like The Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC) and the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC). Currently, CEFROHT is conducting 6 public interest cases on the right to food and livelihood filed in different courts in Uganda and East Africa. This includes the High Court of Uganda, The Constitutional Court, and the East African Court of Justice (EACJ).
At CEFROHT we promote access to justice by taking on pro bono cases where the right to food and livelihood have been violated. We take on pro bono cases such as where a breadwinner abandons their family and stops providing the basic needs.
